MERRY CHRISTMAS!


As magical as my own Christmases have been in Budapest, it made no sense to isolate our children in Canada. The baby Jesus and the angels had to go. We had no choice but to adapt the Santa theme. They had no doting grandparents, fun loving aunts and uncles and cousins to celebrate with. We tried to compensate. Christmas broke us each year; we were the only ones putting presents under the tree. We held onto the Christmas Eve tradition when everyone was wide awake for magic. Jim took them up the street looking for Christmas lights. On top of the hill the blinking red light was thought to be Rudolph’s nose. When I put the last package under the tree, I opened up the front door and yelled “Come quick you are going to miss Santa!” They hurried home, but Santa was always gone by the time they fell through the front door. The magic now carries on with the grandchildren.

  4. What a beautiful variety of goodies, Zsuzsa, I really like the mix of Hungarian treats and the old standby's. I'm hoping to get my cookie gifts done tonight and tomorrow, and start handing them out. I haven't baked anything Hungarian this year, and I know a few people who will be disappointed, but I'm just about baked out! It's been a bit of a marathon. I hope your kitchen is back to normal.

  6. Eva we are not even close! At least they took the "screamer" away but several of the fans remain upstairs and downstairs. It is important to get rid of all the moisture; we don't want mould to grow inside the walls or between the floor boards. Last night they tented an area downstairs. The actual rebuilding cannot start downstairs until the humidity level is back to normal. I am just heading out to Erwin's Fine Bakery to select our Christmas cookies. It sucks but without the dishwasher hooked up and with fans in my way I refuse to cook beyond what is absolutely necessary.

  7. What a shame that your kitchen is still in a shambles but this retrospective of goodies you've made in the past are a great treat.

    Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year
